Fitness Friday: 3 Reasons You Might Not Be Losing Weight.

Poor Eating Habits.

Many people think the less they eat, the less they’ll gain. Not true. You need to be eating enough well-balanced meals so that your daily workout routines begin to become easier. Your metabolism will increase, and you will lose the weight. Be sure you’re not over eating either.

Cortisol.

What is it? It’s a hormone associated with stress and “fight or flight.” When you put too much stress on your body, it can cause chronic cortisol which can cause excess fat storage. It will also cause excess water weight which will eventually go away. Just stick with your workout, and you’ll be fine! 🙂

You’re not challenging yourself.

You need to challenge yourself weekly. If you stick with the same routine, and don’t push yourself to go harder, your metabolism won’t continue to increase. You might be maintaining your weight (which is fine if that’s what your goal is) but in order to lose more weight, we need to keep that metabolism up!

So there’s my little tidbit on fitness for the day. I figured since I posted about peanut butter eggs, I should at least have a little bit of health in there somewhere. Hope you’re all having a great day!

Take Care,

Sara
